I have always been a big fan of Kanye West’s fashion sense, except for the skirt thing but I get it. One of his most notable pieces to date is the H&M x Versace collaboration bomber that he debuted at his performance for the VS Fashion show a few years ago.

The Versace for H&M collection was always going to be a hit, its unmistakable pedigree whipping up a frenzy before the colourful clothes even hit shelves. This jacket in particular has skyrocketed in appreciation since its debut. Originally $129.99 in-store, it was selling for $800 on eBay the very next day. Now, if you search on eBay you would be lucky to find one for sale.

About a month ago my good friend Passion Daisy, another Toronto fashion blogger was fortunate enough to find me one these staple pieces at a thrift shop on Queen St. W. in Toronto. I scooped it for $80! Once I got home I checked it’s current value on eBay and there was only 1 available for $1300 which has already been sold.

The moral of this story is you never know what you can find in thrift shops!
